socks, socks, and more socks

    Husband wanted some toasty toes and that's what he's got! Invested in some nice socks since he wears holes into his in one season alone. Hoping these last a bit longer

    Not exactly "Light" but still great

    • Fit: True to size

    These socks are a bit thicker than I expected, but they still are fantastic for hiking. Can't beat the performance of wool!

    Best socks EVER!

    These socks are amazing, I wear them for every occasion as they breath well and don't smell. The thickness is perfect as they keep my feet cool during the summer. I've used these for everything from all day traveling to fast and light mountain pursuits.

    Perfect for summer hikes

      These socks are thick enough that you don't get blisters while hiking yet they aren't too hot and breath extremely well. They are my go to summer hiking socks.

      Warm and dry

      You Just Can't Go Wrong With These

      Simply put, I wear these every single day throughout winter and fall. Great for hiking and walking to class. They are not too bulking, but still provide my feet with suitable warmth on cold winter days. You can wear them for several days without them getting smelly at all. They also wash very well and dry fast. Give Smartwool a shot if you haven't already!

      Hike all day and stay dry!

        Obviously smart wool has a great name for warmth and comfort. But a thick sock that hikes well and doesn't get spongy!! These things rock. I have quite a few pairs.

        Warm and Supportive!

        These were my first smartwool socks and I have to say that I love them!!! I use them for hiking and they add an extra cushion to my shoes. They are very comfortable and designed very well. I wear a 9.5 shoe and bought a medium.

        Smell Free, Comfortable, Awesome!

          Wore 2 pairs of these on a 2 week road trip... They never smelt, were insanely comfortable and dried quickly, get a pair.

          Thanks for the reviews Cody! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

          Best hiking sock out there. I have many pairs that I also wear to do my daily activities, such as driving to the post office to mail my letters, going to radioshack to buy electronics to tinker with, and of course on all of my hikes.

          Can't go wrong

            These are awesome socks. You can't go wrong with them. They fit well, are durable and are super comfortable.

            Great Father's Day gift!

            I sent a few pairs of these to my dad for Father's day and he loves them! He will mostly use them for his work boots but the wool material will keep his feet dry and comfy!

            Great Sock

              A lot thicker than I thought it would be. Really comfy. Feet don't stink.

              I still haven't had a bad pair of SmartWool socks. They are always good.

              Yeah, merino wool socks!

              I wear a US size 10 shoe, and the large fit perfectly. They feel durable, hug my feet in all the right places and are simply comfortable. A good light hiking sock with all the SmartWool quality as you would expect.
